Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Moses Placeres, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

NEVER FORGOTTEN

FOREVER REMEMBERED

"If you are able, save for them a place inside of you....and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.....Be not ashamed to say you loved them....
Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own....And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind...."

Quote from a letter home by Maj. Michael Davis O'Donnell
KIA 24 March 1970. Distinguished Flying Cross: Shot down and Killed while attempting to rescue 8 fellow soldiers surrounded by attacking enemy forces.

We Nam Brothers pause to give a backward glance, and post this remembrance to you , one of the gentle heroes and patriots lost to the War in Vietnam:

Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul ... and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

From your Nam-Band-Of-Brothers

God Bless!

Hello,
I am writing this for a History class in Gridley
High School in Gridley, Illinois. I would just
like to say thanks for giving up your life in
order to help our country. You played a major
role in winning the war. Without your efforts,
this may not have been possible. I really
appreciate the courage you displayed.
May God Bless You, Crystal Alvey

Take The Challenge

I am a senior at Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois and I recently received the challenge to recognize and remember 100 of the Vietnam War Veterans. One of my teachers is a Vietnam Veteran and feels that these people who gave their lives should have some type of a remembrance. I feel that this challenge is one that will make an impact to at least one person. So now, I challenge you, who are reading this to remember these amazing people who paid the ultimate sacrifice
